FREERIDER Film Showings in Northern California

Hey, so even with a meager California snowpack, we've been able to pull Kyle away from the PNW to present a slideshow and show the film FreeRider, by Crest Pictures.

Here are the flyers for each event. There may be a March 2 showing near Echo Summit as well.

Join Kyle Miller as he presents Freerider, a film by Crest Pictures. Freerider follows Northwest splitboard mountaineer Kyle Miller deep into the Cascades on his “epic hunt for good snow.” It is a short film chronicling Miller's passion for his sport, his ski bum lifestyle, his love of the mountains, his triumphs and disappointments, his pain and his joys, and his unyielding dedication towards fulfilling his riding dreams. Each season Miller sets a high bar for himself. Last year completed Washington’s 10 highest peaks while the cameras rolled during the filming of FreeRider.

Kyle's presentation will focus on personal achievements and progression with time and experience, and how anyone who has that passion can do what Kyle is doing. Too look beyond personal tragedy and create their own noteworthy goals from climbing smaller local mountains to seasonal goals. Its all about adventure!

To me there is nothing more rewarding than looking up at a mountain you feared impossible a few days earlier and seeing your perfect tracks running down the entire slope. – Kyle Miller

I'm sure Kyle or Crest Pictures wouldn't mind if someone printed out the flyers and put up near each of the venues in Tahoe and Mt. Shasta. :thumpsup:

Hey folks,

I wanted to let everyone know that Kyle will be showing the Freerider film tonight, Friday, at the Strawberry Lodge for the Echo Lakes SplitboardFestival.

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=12283

But, because of several issues, including the closure of highway 89 at emerald bay, Kyle will not be showing the film at The Backcountry Store in Truckee on Saturday night. :(

He will be showing the film and doing a slideshow in Santa Rosa on Tuesday. I'm hoping the bay area contingent will show up for it. Come on now, I know there are a ton of you and the Russian River Brewery is up here. There are no excuses. :thatrocks:

have a great weekend and stay safe out in the BC this weekend.

Bummer. I showed up at the Backcountry with a group of folk last night--but sadly found out that the show was cancelled. Oh well, road closures have their downsides. Good luck with the rest of the tour Kyle!
